THE KIMBERLEY SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit and the Northern Cape Drug Rehabilitation Centre held a drug awareness campaign at a local high school in Kimberley on Monday.

Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said the team addressed the grade 11 and 12 pupils on drugs and bullying and the dangers thereof.

“The information on different types of drugs and bullying was relayed to the pupils. Police also informed the attendees that both offences are criminal and persons found guilty could be fined or imprisoned by the court of law,” said Kock.

He added that the programme would also be rolled out in the rest of the Frances Baard District.

The provincial head of the FCS unit, Brigadier Nicky Mills, commended Captain Harriet McKenzie and her team at Kimberley FCS and the NC Drug Rehabilitation Centre for the “outstanding initiative”.
